Bethanga leg-spinner Kieren Salome produced one of the association's finest individual performances of recent years in destroying Howlong on Saturday.
Salome claimed career-best figures of 7-7 as the visitors were humbled for only 51.
"I've been at the club for 15 years since the under 12s and I've seen a few hundreds here, but 7-7 is pretty special," club president and opening batsman Trent Sirl said.
"He bowled consistently at the stumps and turned it enough to worry the batsmen.
"He bowled one bloke where it pitched outside leg stump and came back and bowled him through his legs."
Salome's achievement is even more meritorious given the home team was defending a moderate target of 9-98 from its 40 overs.
"It was hard to score, the wicket was a little slow and their bowlers didn't have a lot of pace," Sirl said.
"When we fielded, we just took all our chances."
